The European Student Card, or ESC, is simply the university’s current Student ID card, with the addition of certain elements to identify it as part of the European Student Card initiative.
The ESC is an EU initiative, funded by the EU Commission, and its aim is to ease the mobility of students between Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Europe.
UCC has been part of the European Student Card Project during its initial phase, joining in January 2017.
In UCC, this means the addition of the ESC holographic logo on the bottom right of Student ID cards.
